Undaunted

Overview

When it comes to creating spellbinding historical fiction, nobody does it quite like Gerald N. Lund. In The Undaunted, he transports readers first to the coal mines of Yorkshire, then across the ocean and the plains to the territory of Utah, where, even in 1879, there is pioneering to be done. A little- known and perhaps even less- appreciated chapter in the Church's history comes to life in this gripping story of a stalwart group of Saints called to create a settlement to serve as a buffer between the ...

Overview

When it comes to creating spellbinding historical fiction, nobody does it quite like Gerald N. Lund. In The Undaunted, he transports readers first to the coal mines of Yorkshire, then across the ocean and the plains to the territory of Utah, where, even in 1879, there is pioneering to be done. A little- known and perhaps even less- appreciated chapter in the Church's history comes to life in this gripping story of a stalwart group of Saints called to create a settlement to serve as a buffer between the established communities of Utah and the lawless frontier of the Four Corners area. Their challenge will be enormous— but the biggest part of it just may be getting there in the first place. Skillfully interweaving historical figures and events with fictional characters, Gerald Lund takes us through the Hole in the Rock and over miles of uncharted country that even today is impassable without all- terrain vehicles. His account of the adventure, romance, and sacrifices of these undaunted pioneers will resonate with readers who love a good story as well as those who want to better understand the incomparable legacy and unconquerable faith of those valiant Saints.

    The Undaunted

    The Undaunted was a great book that was very well written. The story is one of courage and fortitude as a group of about 250 early settlers in Southwestern Utah are called by the prophet of their church-President Brigham Young to advance colonization of the state to the Southeastern reaches of the territory or the Four Corners area.

    If one is at all familiar with the terrain of Southeastern Utah they would immediately recognize what a formidable challenge awaited these pioneers. The terrain in this section of the state for hundreds if not thousands of miles is covered with convoluted sandstone cliffs and impassable gorges. These awesome formations can be seen and traversed safely in our day and age in places such as Lake Powell, Canyon lands National Park, Arches National Park, or Capitol Reef National Park. Even though the Grand Escalante Staircase has been named a National Monument it is a dangerous place for the inexperienced. I would guess at least 80% of this area of the state still remains impassable.

    When the exploratory party set out to find a way to reach the 4 corners area they traveled a circuitous route down the Northern rim of the Grand Canyon, through the Navajo reservation and up into the 4 corners area. The route back to Parowan, Utah was a northern route that took them through Moab, Green River, Castle Dale, Salina and back down to Parowan. It was a journey of over a thousand miles.

    Another party had taken a more easterly approach and even though they reported that the terrain was nearly impassable they thought it could be done.

    The group decided to take the shorter route through the tougher terrain. It took them 6 months, four months longer than planned; they arrived completely worn out and out of food but they did the impossible.

    This is a remarkable story. The author has researched his topic thoroughly; footnotes and documentation are included at the end of each chapter. Interwoven into the historical aspects of this story the author has also included fictional characters that are part of the expedition. It is through them we experience the history.

    Really good read

    I enjoyed this book very much. As a convert to the church, I love to read about the sacrifices the early pioneers made in order to establish the church. I would also recommend this book to those who are not of our faith. The lessons of family,community, and "stickity tootie" (perseverence) and faith in our heavenly father, are lessons we can all benefit from, regardless of our denonination.

    nice read.

    This historical novel is equated to a movie based on a true story. The obvious is that Lund is a master story teller. unfortunantely, his history can be challenged throughout, espically since it portrays the Navajos as the bad guys and the Mormons as the good guys. It appears that he heavily relies on David E. Miller's book, Hole in the Rock which was published in 1959 and somewhat dated. What were Lund's historical facts, yes there were a group of people called Mormons that expanded thier colonization efforts into souther Utah, Arizona and Colorado. Some of the characters were named after real people. besides that, i found myself enthrolled with the book and enjoyed the read despite the historical failures....
